So here I go, inducting Steve Lombardi/Brooklyn Brawler/Boston Brawler/MVP (the original)/Kim Chee into the Jobber Hall of Fame for outstanding achievement in the field of jobbing to the stars on their way to superstardom.
Please induct only one guy with some background if possible and lets keep it clean.
Okay here is mine for now, although I can already tell the old "this guy was not a jobber" debate is around the bend on several of these guys.
My induction is Memphis area tag regulars "Rough and Ready" (not Mike Enos and Dick Slater). These guys wrestled under hoods in the CWA/USWA. Active from around 1987-doing indy work into the 2000's they even had their own manager; Boss Winters.
Probably weighing in at 150 pounds soaking wet and standing a liberal 5'9 a piece, it is still a mystery to me that out of the hundreds of wrestlers to come through the area to be "enhancement" wrestlers, these guys got a manager, and from what I remember never even got close to a token victory.
Most longtime CWA jobbers would pick up a win from time to time, but not Rough and Ready.
So there you have it, your first tag team.
